Brief Refresher Course
From time to time, we at "The Gods Are Bored" like to publish our Mission Statement and make a financial disclosure. This site has recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, so perhaps some of you haven't been around since the get-go.
THE GODS ARE BORED
FOUNDED APRIL 5, 2005
(Because Anne read a newspaper article about a woman who got her dog's vet bills paid by blogging about the dog's plight.)
WHEREAS logic dictates, and certain holy books corroborate, the existence of multiple Higher Powers, and
WHEREAS these powers are perceived by humans living and dead to be of both genders and, in some instances, animal entities or geological phenomena,
THEREFORE be it enacted that "The Gods Are Bored" will recognize and venerate each and every Higher Power from pantheons known and unknown, the unknown being unknown because they are not represented in the annals of recorded history,
FURTHERMORE "The Gods Are Bored" reserves the right to recognize and venerate Higher Powers of more recent vintage, including, but not limited to, the Flying Spaghetti Monster and Cthulhu.
